The first Johnny Rockets restaurant in Hawaii is now open.
It is located in Pearl Highlands Center. Johnny Rockets is known for its made-to-order burgers and hand-spun shakes.
It was packed on Friday.
“What makes Johnny Rockets so special is the quality of the food we serve, fresh never frozen beef. We get bread from Love’s. Our buns are baked by Love’s Bakery here. They’re warm when they arrive here in the morning. That’s how fresh they are,” said district manager Rick Holloway.
While this is the first Johnny Rockets in the islands, it won’t be the only one.
Another one is set to open in the new Ka Makana Ali’i shopping Center in Kapolei later this year.
Another one is planned for the Big Island at Waiakea Center in Hilo.
